Ricky Van Veen Says Coffee Is Not for Closers


On his Tumblr blog today, College Humor founder turned big IAC dude Ricky Van Veen lays out the politics of "New York Power Meals," as told to him by a "good friend/scene veteran" (OMG Barry Diller?). The breakfast part is kind of confusing to us, but then we've never been asked to breakfast (and we're totally fine with that!):

"Breakfast means you’ve got a current deal to discuss (if you already have a relationship) or you’re willing to consider a relationship with someone new, but that person isn’t especially important."

We totally agree with the coffee part (so Betty Draper!), but our burning question to Ricky is: What about brunch?
